Tone up the Tone!

The tone of your voice makes a great deal of difference in the feedback you get –

I’ve done experiments with my dogs –
Yelling at them – I LOVE YOU! And watching them fall down, roll over and quiver in fright
Cooing to them, “You awful, ugly dog, I can’t stand you.” And seeing them go all wiggly with delight and love –

Obviously the words didn’t create that feedback – it was my tone –
We can bring someone down easily with our tone –and we can build them up – it’s that powerful.

Today – the challenge for you is to use your tone to encourage, support, ease and love others – regardless of what you have to say – can you say it kindly, quietly, with warmth? Of course you can – will you?

You Create Your Day by the way you think! Make it Magnificent
